The Michael DeMeng creative weekend is all but a faded memory as we all try and recover from a jam packed few days with Michael and 50+ awesome artists. Some came from as far away as Fort Lauderdale, FL and Ocean Isle, SC and Myrtle Beach, SC, Phoenix, AZ, Atlanta, GA, Nashville, TN and Athens, GA... It was truly an amazing Mothers Day weekend as 4 sets of mothers and daughters joined together to attend our assemblage workshops along with 50 other artists. The festivities began on Thursday evening with Michael doing a reading from his new book, The Secrets of Rusty Things, due out in July. After 2 days of liquid nails, found objects & critiques from Michael, this successful & fun-filled weekend came to an end. As a finale to this amazing event,we enjoyed a delightful dinner at Flight in Hendersonville,NC with Michael, Cheryl Prater & her husband, Mark and Christ Werst from Atlanta.
